I have become a student of the spread offense. I have a passion for the game of football and love to talk football. I believe that the spread is the best offense for ourmodern game. That players love to play the spread and that the offense brings excitementto the game. It is more fun not only to play, but is a blast to coach. It forces defenses toadjust to you and not the other way around. If the offense is executed properly, it isalmost impossible to stop. Most importantly, the offense creates points and theopportunity for big plays. I don’t know about how High School football in your area, butit has been my experience that in a majority of games the team that creates the most bigplays wins the ball game.We will start our discussion of the offense by talking about the philosophy of theoffense then continue on to outline the details of the offense. I will present a play callingand naming system in which I am comfortable with and is based on the use of wristbands, this is not to say that whatever system you would like to use can not be done. Letme stress that I think the spread, and for that matter any offense, is better suited for the nohuddle offense. It is also important to point out, that I do not believe that the spread issomething you do in addition to your regular offense. If you are a wishbone team, thenrun the wishbone, if you start playing around with the spread to help your wishbone itwill not be efficient and you will not get good enough at it to force teams to honor it. Iguess what I am saying is sell out and run the spread, not as part of your offense, but asyour offense.I am a football coach, not a novelist or award winning author, I intend this e-book to be a body of knowledge. I hope that you find it easy to read and easy to understand.Thanks for your time and enjoy my e-book.
